Richard M. Dougherty, of Dougherty and Associates welcomes Leslie Burger, Director of the Princeton Public Library in Princeton, New Jersey. As President of ALA, she is well-versed in library issues in an era of change. They will be joined by noted librarians to discuss library transformation, not as an abstraction or buzz word, but as something real with hard, practical things necessary to make it happen. They will spell out what needs to happen in facilities, budgets staffing management and leadership to make transformation a reality.
Libraries may downlink the satellite coordinates to the five College of DuPage teleconference programs for on-site viewing, or staff may view the teleconferences via webcast from any location with adequate Internet access. The webcasts, also available at no charge to libraries, will be archived and available for 60 days following the live broadcast. Libraries may order tapes or DVDs of the broadcasts for their collections for $30 each.
